My design inspiration comes from my surrounding & time. I’d usually take time to develop and enhance my design.
To remodel a 3 bedroom flat by hacking down almost 90% of the interior walls, incl the toilets. The owner just needs a Master Bedroom with a linked walk-in, a home office and 2 bigger bathrooms.
I could start all from scratch when designing an older flat. It’s like creating new art from blank paper. I have encountered such projects before and the progress was challenging, and I feel so accomplished when the outcome meets the owner’s requirements.
We engaged Schubert to take on the complete renovation of a 25-year-old, 3-bedroom condo apartment that was in virtually original condition. During the ID selection process, we felt that Schubert was the most effective communicator out of all the IDs we met. From the initial proposal, Schubert was able to suggest some ideas that showed that he gave due consideration to our renovation brief which was something we appreciated.
As we were embarking on a full renovation of a 1582 sqft unit we needed to ensure that we were able to communicate well with our ID to complete the project within budget and on time. Schubert takes the time and effort to understand why certain requests were made and followed up with solutions in a timely manner, making the renovation journey a smooth one.
During the renovation process, Schubert and his designer were very proactive with updates. Changes that were discussed were quickly updated in the 3D renderings for final confirmation which most IDs would not go this extra mile. As mentioned by other reviewers, Schubert is meticulous and often would point out potential problems and propose solutions along the project.
Schubert was able to meet our handover date and the final project was delivered was also exactly to the planned renderings. Rectification works after the handover was also handled seamlessly.
Would definitely recommend Schubert to anyone embarking on a renovation project.
Schubert is a consummate professional and these are a few examples to highlight this:
(a) At the start of our renovation journey, we met with several ID firms. What set Schubert apart was his professionalism and dedication to our renovation project. Schubert took the time to understand our requirements over the phone. A few weeks later, when we met him at his office to discuss the quotation, we understood the reason why he needed to take time to prepare his quotation. His quotation was meticulously prepared accompanied by photographs and illustrations. We were impressed with Schubert’s ability to sketch out our ideas on the fly which helped greatly in our visualisation. At the same time, he offered practical advice on the choice of materials, functional design, and project timeline. We decided to work with him to build our home.
(b) During the design phase, we were confident that we made the right decision. Schubert’s experience and passion guided us throughout the project. It ranged from small and overlooked details such as how the doors of the cabinet open, whether the space was maximised or cluttered if the size of our sink and WC is practical. For the bigger items on the renovation agenda, Schubert expended a lot of time to design the house according to our requirements and budget. He gave us good advice on material selection and cost. He was also very patient when explaining his design and space layout. On occasions when my wife and I just cannot agree on a common design/ material, we can always rely on Schubert to be the tie-breaker.
(c) We left the renovation proper in Schubert’s good hands. We were kept appraised on the renovation progress through regular updates and photographs. When the project encountered issues caused by new Covid-19 restrictions, Schubert was able to quickly reallocate resources and adjust the works to ensure that the renovation stayed on schedule. The whole process was largely uneventful in a good way.
(d) Schubert also provided great after-sales service. After renovations, Schubert continued to be responsive in scheduling his team to assist us to rectify minor issues.
Our renovation journey with Schubert had been an enjoyable one. We are very happy with the completed renovations, and we look forward to going back home after each day of work. For that, we must thank Schubert.
Schubert did a great job in designing and renovating our EC apartment. He was very patient in advising us on the various colors and materials needed to create our perfect, cozy home. Once the renovation started, he personally ensured that the works ended before the 7th month – a specific request from my wife and me. Overall, we’re very satisfied with his services such that we even recommended some of our friends when they needed IDs.
